Road signs

gaelic-road-sign

Road signs feature large in the photograph albums of many a cyclist.  Presumably this is to give some credence to their claims of epic adventure.  Forgive me for mentioning this, but if this is the motivation, there’s a flaw.  You see, I could do the same – with a car and a camera.  And if I ever actually need photographs to convince my friends – and I don’t – I’d be taking a long hard look at those around me.  So why the photograph?  Well, you know you are in the Highlands proper when the signs become bilingual.  Incidentally, ‘Gaelic’ is actually, I’m assured, pronouned just like the stuff you use to ward off French people.  Something like that anyway.  And don’t get me wrong, we have much to thank the French for – words like ‘collaborator‘.
